Israel, with a thriving agrifood industry, is in the lead of agricultural development and research
Innovation as a fundamental pillar for their agrifood sector
Popular for a growing, high-tech agrifood industry, Israel is a leading exporter of fresh produce and agricultural technologies. Besides, their growing health interest has driven them to develop organic, sugar free o meatless foods.
Room for Improvement
More than half of the country’s area is desert, the weather is extremely dry and the water scarcity does not encourage crops or farming. Israel has therefore felt the need to focus on increasing crop quality and irrigation. Therefore, EIT Food can introduce them as a benchmark for Southern European countries with similar issues, while building a bridge for them to work closely with the EU in agrifood projects.
Israeli has invested in drip and micro-irrigation solutions and has created self-cleaning models that maintain uniform flow rate regardless of water quality and pressure.
With a view to provide EIT Food South partners with excellent skills on writing business proposals, EIT Food South organised a webinar titled "Structure of a Proposal for EIT Food". This training was aimed at giving invaluable tools for preparing business proposals to over 50 participants.
We send a warm welcome to our 2 new core member partners and to our three new Rising Food Stars who are now joining the EIT Food South Community. While partners bring extensive expertise and experience to support us create a brand-new food system, startups represent the agile and swift partners that help us drive the innovation of the future within this large network.
CLC South and CLC North-East came together in Warsaw to inaugurate the 2019 collaboration with 13 EIT Food hubs. This local network of partners will help EIT Food scout for talent & organise activities in their local ecosystems in order to continue boosting local innovation and improving the food sector.
